Blue Moon Distances Itself From Slater Connection

8/15/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steven Slater wanted a couple of bottles of Blue Moon beer before he hopped off Flight 1052 last week -- but the beer company wants nothing to do with him!

As we first reported, the two beer bottles Slater grabbed on his way off the plane were Blue Moon -- which go for around $6 on a JetBlue flight.

A rep for the beer company tells TMZ they weren't involved in what went down in the slightest. They tell us, "We have not been asked nor do we plan to promote our brand in this manner for the sake of publicity. There were some very serious allegations made surrounding this incident and our company is not in the business of trivializing public safety for publicity or potential financial gain."

So maybe the expression "All press is good press" isn't so true after all ...

Oh pleeease, just don't say anything.
I understand what Steve, the F/A, did probably wasn't the smartest thing, but still, way deep down we all all understand and wish we had his nerve...kinda glad I don't but still...
Take 2 beers and jump, is something we all dream about even it it is with a Bud!

I guess as far as it goes for Blue Moon - this is by far their biggest Ad Campaign ever..if they decide not to use the opportunity, that would simply be bad business sense.
Well done for Slater - what he did was very unprofessional in aviation point of view but totally understandable overall. BTW these "DOUCHE BAG" passengers..90% of the time travels on FIRST CLASS!

This makes me like this beer company even more. When I buy my next 6 pack at the grocery store it's gonna be a pack of Blue Moon!

Oh yeah, he's cool! He grabbed a couple of beers! How juvenile and outrageous! Hope this guy does some jail time. If any of us as passengers did what he did, we'd be in jail. What makes him so special? Good for Blue Moon!

A passanger came forward on the news and said Slater was in a foul mood for the whole flight. I worked for an airline and their was no excuse for his antics.

SLTATER HAD NO WAY OF KNOWING WHERE RAMP GUYS WERE WHEN HE DEPLOYED THE SLIDE. SLATER GOT VERY LUCKY NO ONE WAS HURT.

I understand we all get tick off but he was just plain wrong.

Blue Moon is owned by Coors. Coors has a reputation of supporting anti-gay groups by dolling out large sums of money to "anti-gay causes". Steven Slater is gay. In spite of the "dangers" of his exit from the plane, there are a lot of people who see him as a hero. It's simply public relations arithmetic.

All press is good press. Not every advertisement or endorsement is a good ad or endorsement.

I have no doubt the folks at Blue Moon are as happy as clams that they are getting so much press. They are smart enough to avoid endorsing Slater so that they can avoid any possible blowback.

Just good ol' common sense.

How do you know it was Blue Moon? Lots of reports saying it was Heineken. Can you reveal some more details?

I was totally rooting for this guy when i first heard about this...until I saw the guy speak on camera. He seems like a total douchebag and kind of creepy on top of it. This idiot needs to just go away

Well, who the F cares if they take a stand one way or another about this event? I don't! Assaulting any member of a flight crew is a FEDERAL offense. Jail the passenger. Fact is she slammed the overhead compartment door so hard on his head she cut him. That constitutes ASSAULT. Prosecute the biatch.
